Michaela Alleman, 20, and Talon Feucht, 22, were arrested early Monday morning, thanks to a collaborative effort between New Martinsvillle Police Department and Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.

According to NMPD Chief Tim Cecil, Alleman and Feucht broke into some vehicles in Woodsfield, Ohio and were caught on video committing the offenses. Cecil said the duo stole two laptops, an iPad, phone, approximately $60 or $70 in change, among other items.

Cecil reported that the duo stole the items from a deputy’s daughter.

One of the Apple devices was able to be found electronically, with the location being shown as Monroe Avenue in New Martinsville. Cecil said he went to the residence shown to speak with the owners and was given a laptop computer, which Monroe County Sheriff’s Office confirmed as one of the missing items.

Cecil said after he recovered the laptop and stopped at the police station, he went back to the Monroe Avenue residence and caught two individuals – Alleman and Feucht – attempting to escape. Cecil said he ran after the duo, caught them, and then called for backup.

However, while awaiting backup, Alleman and Feucht attempted to escape again. Cecil, once again, had to run after the duo, which he caught again.

“Sergeant Don Larsen and Patrolman Michael Owens arrived and got (Alleman and Feucht) cuffed and arrested and put in the cruisers.

Cecil reported that Feucht has been charged with fleeing, while Alleman was arrested on an outstanding warrent. According to Cecil, Alleman was already wanted for not appearing in jail for sentencing due to a shoplifting and possession of meth charge.
